Love must be genuine

"Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; .....Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them."-Romans 12:9 and 14 (NRSV)

Yes, love must be genuine... Do not do what is evil and hold fast to do what is good.... This is not easy... Yesterday there was a lady, wrote one sentence on the facebook... Telling us that how life is so unfair.... Did you have this kind of thought before? I believe most of us feel that life is so unfair....

This lady told us that she was cheated by someone.... And felt that why good person always be bullied.... I wrote a comment to encourage her: "We should thank God that we are not the one who cheat them." As Paul mentioned in Romans 12: 9, we must love genuinely and do not do something evil, we must hold fast in doing good. No matter how unfair we are facing, we want to insist in doing good. Due to Jesus was unfairly judged and crucified on the cross for us... When people unfairly criticise him, judged him and even crucify him, He still keep silent and died for us on the cross.

Do not worry, Jesus knows how we feel when we get cheated or bullied.... He is just and faithful.... He knows what to do... Let us leave this to Him, to deal with that person.... Ha! What we need to do is........."Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them" Vv. 14
